It was installed because CraftCMS depends on it :)According to term.log - unattended-upgrade performed the update 2018-01-06 06:41 and every package was updated (including php7.1-mbstring)
Just two minutes after that, unattended-upgrade runs again and removes php7.1-mbstring and only that package. I can't find any activity on the server on that time (no users logged in and such).
So something triggered unattended-upgrade to do this, hmm / Jonathan On 01/10/2018 12:18 PM, firstname.lastname@example.org wrote:

If that package doesn't depend on anything and it was automatically installed, it may well be (depending on configuration, somewhere in /etc/apt) that it gets automatically removed when not needed anymore. The question is... why was it installed in the first place? Perhaps you find a hint somewhere in /var/log/apt/term.log Cheers - -- tomás -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.4.12 (GNU/Linux) iEYEARECAAYFAlpV9n4ACgkQBcgs9XrR2kbP+QCeMVzcvSTgnUAlhZoMeX45t7oq NPoAnA3XSZ4r/6N22EhneAaKZRdwjBvP =IVds -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
